    Reba x Loretta x Johnny Cash? That's a lot of country music icons rights there!

    What's it about? Well, Reba McEntire, Loretta Lynn and Bobby Bare will perform at this year's Johnny Cash Music Festival.

    Also, singer and comedian Mark Lowry will host the fourth annual event. The concert is set for August 15 and will once again take place at Arkansas State University's Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

    "If we had any one of these four individuals on the bill, we would have an extremely successful event, but having all four at once is a real coup for the Johnny Cash Music Festival," fest founder Bill Carter said. "The reputation of the event and generosity of the people at Arkansas State and in Jonesboro continue to grow each year. This is going to be a great show."

    That, we do not doubt!

    "When I was asked to perform at the Johnny Cash Music Festival, there was absolutely no hesitation," McEntire said. "I have always had a great deal of respect for Johnny Cash, and not just because he was one of the finest entertainers, performers and recording artists this industry has ever known. It is also because of his compassion and generosity. The fact that some of the money raised from these concerts goes into a scholarship fund to help deserving kids further their education is something I know would make him very proud. I'm also really happy that I will be playing on the campus of Arkansas State again-- we had a great time when I performed there years ago. Jonesboro is a very hospitable town, and I look forward to being there again."

    As in year's past, proceeds from this year's event will fund the restoration of the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home in Dyess, Arkansas, as well as support a scholarship fund established in the international superstar's name.

    Legacy, culture, cash and a good cause – WE LOVE IT!
